Henry’s Auctions in Mutterstadt, Germany will hold its 9th International Special Auction of Rugs & Carpets on Saturday 10 June 2017. The 321 lots encompass a wide variety of late 19th and 20th-century Persian, Caucasian, Anatolian, Chinese, Tibetan and Turkmen rugs.

Worth noting is a large consignment of first half 20th-century Iranian town rugs and carpets, many of them pictorials, from the Abdi Roubeni Collection, as well as a private collection of Tibetan rugs consigned by the heirs of the late Abdolrahim Dilmanian, a well-known Hamburg carpet dealer.
